Kushe Aunsi: Nepal’s Father’s Day #he_deserves_it


Ever wonder why do we feel happy when we celebrate with family together???
HOW HUMAN BECOME HAPPY ???

WhoIsWho Nepal team would like to wish HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all.

CAN WE REALLY DEFINE THE TERM FATHER (बुबा)?

पिता स्वर्गः पिता धर्मः पिता परमकं तपः
पितरि प्रीतिमापन्ने सर्वाः प्रीयन्ति देवताः – Mahabharat, Chapter 258
 
My father is my heaven, my father is my dharma,
he is the ultimate penance of my life.
If he is happy, all deities are pleased.

A father is more than just a name, more than a title.
It is more than the sperm that fertilised an egg.
A father is someone who is willing to step up, take care of his children and his family. 

HOW DO WE CELEBRATE FATHER'S DAY IN NEPAL?
  • In Father’s day, he who has already lost his father remember  him giving Sida daan to pandit (Sida is holy mixture of rice grains and other pure food materials with clothes). 
  • Some men in Kathmandu go to Gokarna (a place east in Kathmandu) to do the Sraddha or pinda daan to their deceased father and some do Shradha at home or at the near river or at any holy place nearby.
  • Once Shiva and Parbati disappeared from Himalaya parbat. All the gods were very surprised and started searching them all across the universe. Brahma and other gods, caught Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati in Deer’s lives hiding in Sleshmantak forest in Pashupatinath. The “Buck” Shiva was caught by Brahma by his horns. Horns of Shiva came out in Brahma’s hand.  Then Lord Shiva asked Brahma and Bishnu to establish those horns as Shiva linga in somewhere in Nepal as they think fit. Brahma placed it in Gorkarna. Since then, It is believed that worshiping Shiva in Gokarneshwor Mahadev and doing pinda daan (homage to dead people) is equivalent of visiting Gaya 10 times (Gaya is another Hindu holy place).
